Marking Enzo’s 116th birthday with a smashing collection of Ferrari history.
The city of Modena, Italy and the Ferrari company launched a new museum in the heart of the city yesterday, marking the 116th birthday of the company’s founder, Enzo Ferrari. The facility was built around Enzo’s childhood home and his father’s workshop, with additional structures built to showcase the models. The museum is the new home of some of Ferrari’s most important and beautiful historic models.
The Enzo Modena museum joins the original Museo Ferrari in Maranello, which houses Ferrari’s present and future lineups. The two museums are close to each other, with combo tickets and shuttle buses allowing visitors to combine the past, present and future. There will be more than a century’s-worth of Ferrari models packed in to the new building, which is shaped like the hood of a 1950’s Ferrari race car.
